Overwatch 2.02 Update Adds New Oasis Map, Includes Deadly Cars and Jump Pads

Overwatch’s latest 2.02 update has just gone live and brings with it the hotly anticipated Oasis map.

The map has been available in the Overwatch PTR (Public Test Realm) on PC for a few weeks now, but today the official update was rolled out to all platforms.


Blizzard announced the release of the new map with a handy preview video that you can check out below.

The map is a brand-new map for the Control game mode and is set in one of the world’s most advanced cities located in the Arabian Desert. The video description goes into a little bit of the lore surrounding the map, too.

“Researchers and academics from around the region came together to found a city dedicated to scientific progress without restraints—a monument to human ingenuity and invention. The city and its inhabitants are governed by the Ministries, a collection of brilliant minds who possess many secrets that have attracted the interest of powerful organizations from around the world.”

This isn’t just any other Overwatch map, though. Players will have to avoid speeding insta-kill cars, and will be able to navigate the sprawling map with jump pads to shoot through the air.

Overwatch’s 2.02 update is currently coming in at 646.6 MB on PS4, and will likely be a similar size on both the Xbox One and PC. No other content or character balances are said to be included in the patch.
